Jack White has a general reputation as a guy who doesn’t like rap, but it seems that this reputation is way off. Talking to Rolling Stone recently, White revealed that he worked on a few unfinished tracks with Jay Z at some point. According to White, the reason those songs never came out might be this: “I’m not sure he liked them.” Also, White says that Kanye West contacted him as a possible collaborator when he was beginning work on Yeezus. White was down, but West never followed up on the request for whatever reason. But White remains a fan, and he says nice things about Kanye’s recent Yeezus tour: “That might have been the greatest show I’ve seen in my life. It was more punk, more in-your-face than anything I’ve seen.” Now, let’s all close our eyes and imagine what might’ve been.
